I already have one thanks to the guys at Utopia :-)
We will be taking it apart fairly soon.

The Touchscreen is no longer an issue as regards stability and there is a new  hi-res connector+ camera and some other 'goodies'
If you behave I may let you touch it ;-)

Would be interested in at least seeing it. It has the chance to be competitive for a couple of months, barring stability concerns...

Looking forward to your review...



It would not be long till the Amlogic equivalent comes out, cheaper and faster than this.

Then IMX515 actually has potential to be open-sourced first as a business decision so that they can remain competitive with the Amlogic boards. If that is the case, we will finally have that low-cost open-source Cortex A8 development kit you were raving about when the 8" model first appeared on the scene.

The iMX515 has loads of potential, even now it is not being fully utilized, I suspect that this product uses the same central PCB set, in which case  any hacks for the A8 will also work for the A10.
Just this has the extra camera which again I suspect is an additional PCB
